Parents, read on. A new cookbook, out next month, Baby Love, wants to let you in on a little secret: baby food is really easy to make. Basically just pureed produce, you can create baby food at home with a blender and an afternoon.
News correspondent Norah O’Donnell, along with the help of her husband, chef Geoff Tracy, has developed and home-tested Baby Love’s simple recipes for yummy baby food. If this busy duo can make it from scratch, so can you.
With just an hour of cooking (boiling, blending and pouring the puree into ice cube trays for freezing) you’ll get two weeks of fresh, additive-free meals at a fraction of the cost of store-bought brands. (The book estimates savings of nearly $400 in six months.) Now, it seems silly to pay supermarket prices for jars of peas and carrots, nowhere near as fresh as what you can quickly make in your own kitchen.
Reserve your copy for recipes like applesauce, baby guacamole, butternut squash and chicken soup – and get the scoop on making and storing the best food for your baby.
